Springboard Trust response to COVID-19 pandemic

With the recent announcements of new precautions for managing COVID-19, Springboard Trust is actively reviewing its operations. We are currently monitoring developments and following the advice of the Ministries of Health and Education.

We know you will at this point be concerned about your own schools and communities, and will want to prioritise that work. Our team is taking extra precautions and working with venues and organisers to ensure that our programmes do not impact on your communities.

We remain committed to leadership development, and will continue to find innovative ways of providing safe and impactful learning.

As a first step, we are moving all meetings, calls, programme and workshop delivery to an online environment. We will send Zoom links to all those who wish to join, and those impacted can expect further communications from us in the coming days and weeks. While community transmission of COVID is not a reality at the time of writing, our first and foremost priority is to create safe conditions for everyone.

As a second step, the Springboard team and volunteers are all practicing safe distancing. We have reorganised our office to accommodate this, and have urged all team members to stay home if it is safer to do so. Our internal meetings are now conducted online, and our team has been advised to reschedule or reorganise all future meetings to accommodate this.

This may mean we have to reschedule or delay parts of our programmes at short notice - it is our top priority to be careful and safe in the way we work.

Finally, we have postponed some workshops and our ongoing recruitment - individuals affected can expect to hear from us soon.

If you have any queries or concerns about the delivery of upcoming workshops, programmes or services you have with Springboard Trust, please contact your Programme Manager for more information.

We have provided some useful links below, and please do not hesitate to get in touch.
